Re: Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan
After carefully reviewing your application, I am sorry to inform you that we are unable to admit you to our Master of Public Policy program. You should not view this as a reflection on your ability, but rather as a comment on the limited size of our program and the number of applications we received this year.
The process of selecting students for the incoming class is one that our admissions committee takes very seriously. We must make very fine distinctions among highly qualified applicants, many of whom could be successful in our program. We regret that in so doing we must turn away so many candidates with whom we are impressed.
Again, I regret that we are not able to offer you admission to our program and hope that you will receive a more favorable decision from another program, and that you will continue to pursue your interest in public policy.
